Life Experience Credit

Not all learning takes place in the classroom. Valuable college-level knowledge may be acquired through job experience and other life accomplishments. Credit earned through life experience may be used to meet up to 50 percent of the requirements for most technical certificates, Associate in Applied Science degrees or an Associate in Liberal Studies degree.

Credit is awarded based on an evaluation of documentation of the learning experience. Learning experience must parallel courses offered at Lake Land College. The documentation is presented in a portfolio which is then evaluated by a faculty member who teaches the related course(s). Students are advised to enroll in Portfolio Development (INS 099) in order to receive instruction on preparing the portfolio. A per credit evaluation fee is charged upon formal granting of experiential credit.
